I run almost the exact same setup. your springs arent compressed because you are on almost flat ground. They WILL compress when they need to, heres a few pics of mine before I put the 37s on. 2.5 TF BB and 4 door rubi hardtop springs. Hope this helps. That rock is I think at least 24" tall, if not taller.

Hey that's Disney Land. You should be able to compress them pretty good out there.

The front will help a bunch, disconnecting the rear wont make much difference.

whats the purpose of the dual antennas? everything ive ever read has said they are worthless that close together. the only time they are useful is running on the front and back of big rigs to cover "dead zones"

Exactly and your better off running one in the middle than the side.

If you are not disconnecting your front sway bar you are only going to flex so much. Get some quick disconnects for the front. I would not disconnect the rear at all.

Like they said, your front flex will be very minimal with your sway bar connected. Those springs will work great once you disconnect and drive through rougher terrain than that (your expecting flex and really flat ground). Drive up on those rocks in the background of your pics.
